Position: Standing in the pit area, ~3 meter from stage, slightly to the right.
Mics: clamped to sweater collar
There was a very tall guy standing in front of me, during some parts he may have been obstructing the mics from getting a good capture. There's some talking in the softer parts, and there may be the occasional screamer. My initial transfer was normalised with Audacity, and apparantly that had introduced a difference in balance. The left channel was louder than the right. Grigio offered to fix it, but then noticed it did not occur on the master. So he just improved the sound.
Support act Dead Rat Orchestra was also recorded. Check them out at one of the following links:

Subject: Another stunning show
I love the "Hope Drone" and the perfect transition to "Mladic", I imagine how it must have been to be there: the way they execute this section is absolutely stunning and the feeling of being gradually enveloped by the dark sonic palette is unbeatable. And this does not let you go throughout the show.
The setlist is almost perfect ("Mladic", "Rockets", and "The Sad Mafioso" are the highlights), apart from the absence of "World Police". I am also strangely drawn to the patience with which they excute each and every note.
Some nerdy remarks about the setlist:
1. Storm is of course "Lift Yr. Skinny Fists Like Antennas to Heaven -> Gathering Storm"
2. "The Dead Flag Blues" is in fact "Slow Moing Trains -> The Cowboy..." ("SMT" is another highlight, by the way, Godspeed are becoming the masters of drone)
3. "East Hastings" is "The Sad Mafioso -> String Loop Manufactured During Downpour"
Subject: Probably one of the best gigs I've been to in 40 years
The sound was amazing from the start and it felt like the Troxy was going to take off into the stratosphere with the Hope Drone. This excellent recording captured the whole ambience and awesomeness of the evening and I'm still getting shivers down my spine listening to Gamelan and Albanian again.
Roll on their new album...!
